Our general collecting of bryophytes in the northern Shawangunks, NY (Ulster County) revealed 125 new species records (93 new mosses and 32 new liverworts), which also marks the first published records of liverworts for the area. Incidental to our bryophyte work, we found seven lichen species new to the area. These records combined with prior research makes for a total of 177 mosses (36 families), 36 liverworts (19 families), and 70 lichens (20 families) known from the area. New moss records include the NY State rare mosses Pohlia lescuriana and Coscinodon cribrosus. These additional rare moss species found here, coupled with prior records of new moss habitats and rare species, indicate that the northern Shawangunks is a notable location for cryptogams.
